Through her diary, found after her death, much more is learned about things that Rose Dawson (formerly Rose DeWitt Bukater) had kept in her heart during her life. After being rescued at sea, Rose lives in New York several years, goes to California, then to Wisconsin where she meets Jack Dawson's relatives, learns much more about Jack, and marries his cousin Jeremy, who is apparently murdered by her ex-fiance Caledon's men. Rose moves to Milwaukee and marries Darrell Calvert. Rose dreams often of Jack and feels his presence in her life. Jack helps Rose in various mysterious ways during her life, but most importantly by inspiring her to sacrifice herself for others and by gradually helping her to forgive the survivors of the Titanic for their failure to return and rescue those in the water. Other facts about Rose's life are revealed at her funeral. Story continues with events in the life of Rose's granddaughter Lizzy and her husband Brock. Authenticity of various paranormal experiences of Rose involving Jack, at first uncertain, seems to be gradually confirmed.

In the early hours of 15 April 1912, after the majestic liner Titanic had split apart and the 1,500 men, women and children struggled to stay alive in the freezing Atlantic, the sea was alive with the sound of screaming. Then, as the ship sank to the ocean floor and the passengers slowly died from hypothermia, a deathly silence settled over the sea. Yet the echoes of that night reverberated through the lives of each of the 705 survivors. SURVIVING THE TITANIC tells the extraordinary stories of some of those who survived. Although we think we know the story of the Titanic - the famously unsinkable ship that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America in April 1912 - little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy. How did the loss of the ship shape the lives of the people who survived? How did those who were saved feel about those who perished? And how did they remember that terrible night, in effect a disaster that has been likened to the destruction of a small town? Timed to coincide with the 100thanniversary of the sinking, SURVIVING THE TITANIC will shed new light on this enduringly fascinating story by showing how the disaster continued to shape the lives of a cross-section of passengers who escaped the sinking ship.
